Shane leads Baringa’s commercial advisory work in hydrogen and is responsible for developing and deploying analytical tools and viewpoints that allow us to advise our clients in navigating the opportunities and commercial risks associated with hydrogen and P2X fuels.
Shane first picked up the urge to have an energy-transition-led career while learning about how solar cell materials work in undergraduate physics. He spent 4 years researching nanostructured photovoltaic materials in Cambridge before swapping lab coats and cleanrooms for spreadsheets and economics, initially spending 4 years as a strategy consultant at LEK Consulting in London and Melbourne before moving to Baringa to focus exclusively on low-carbon infrastructure.
Analytical by nature, Shane loves the interface between power, gas, carbon, hydrogen, and CCS and tries to help clients better understand or improve their competitive position through this lens. He has helped clients identify more economic hydrogen use cases, optimise power procurement for electrolysers, build commercial cases for CCS-enabled power generation, and model hydrogen within energy systems.
Outside of work Shane likes to cook (but not bake!), loves a good outdoor summer gig, and plays enough 5-a-side football that you would think his finishing would have improved by now.
